Hey everybody! I’ve always appreciated high performing flashlights ever since I was a kid, but I didn’t really “get into it” until 2016 where I bought my first “real” flashlight, which was a Nitecore P12GT. That little light blew my dang mind at the time. I could not believe it. Such power available in such a beautifully crafted light that was light and comfortably fit in my pocket. I fell in love and the rest is history. My collection is rather small compared to many of you out there, but I’ll share a pic or two of my lights. Just wanted to say hi, present myself, tell you all that I’m completely obsessed with cool flashlights, and finally make an account in a forum where I can discuss all things light related, as my real life friends though always very impressed with the lights I own, don’t really get it and I can’t really have a conversation about it with them Silly Ya’ll can call me Andy, or Neuro as most people call me online, or whatever you please. Pleased to meet you all Smile

I just like shining my lights into the dark out of pure enjoyment and awe.

Have a nice time here, Neurotoxin!

There's a link in my signature on how to post pics, but it might be impossible with Google Photos.

Do you think Puerto Rico should remain a Commonwealth, become a state, or become its own country?

Jeez that’s a hot woman! What’s her name?

Honestly, if we became our own country, everything would go to crap and the island would go bankrupt pretty quickly. The average Puerto Rican is lazy, easily corruptible and quick to take shortcuts. Sucks to say that about my own people but it’s true, so I guess that at least for the time being, I’d rather stay a commonwealth, though that’s just a pretty term for colony, which is what we actually are.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction for the pictures, I’ll give it a read at another moment and make the necessary updates (will likely need to make a photobucket acc since that’s what I’ve always seen on most forums). By the way, how do I add a signature so I can just list my current lights and maybe add a cool pic like you in the future? I don’t see any option for that in my account settings.

That's Milla Jovovich, the star of the Resident Evil movies.

When I click on Edit, I only see the password and e-mail info section, then below that the option to add a picture, below that the "personalize blocks" with the 2 options for adding the advanced post editor for new and existing threads, below that I have the private message options, and then below that, finally I have the time zone settings. Nothing below that Sad Can't find any setting for adding a signature. Maybe it's cuz my account is new and there's a period of time I have to go through or a thread count I must pass before the option becomes available?

Click on "My Account" first, and then "Edit" second.

You cannot click on the "Edit" that I am talking about until after you click on "My Account."

Thank you, I was working on making an account so I could share the pictures here. I have added screenshots now of what “My Account” —> “Edit” page looks like completely.

Well, you're right.

It's not there.

You should probably send a PM to Mr. Admin and see what he says.

Maybe include a link to this thread.

Good luck!

No worries, I’ll just wait till it shows up. Surely it’s more of a restriction on new accounts. This forum IS a bit clunky, though Silly Quotes are showing up as code when I’m replying, (maybe that’s what it looks like to everyone?) plus I’m getting a lot of odd bugs lol. Edit: By the way, thank you for all your help!! Greatly appreciated Smile

The only restriction for new accounts that I am aware of is the number of PMs you can send per day.

Mr. Admin is very friendly, and I think can help you, so if you want to have a signature, you should PM him.  :THUMBS-UP:

If I may add to RC's info, the gorgeous Milla has starred in many other movies besides the 5 Resident Evil series.  Other than an actress she is also a singer and model.

Thank you! That Mila definitely sure is something Love
I’ve always thought Russian women are among the most beautiful specimens in the planet. It’s their facial structure, and even their fingers are perfect. Nice, round and symmetrical all around. Not to mention their accent! Russian is literally my favorite language, I should try learning it some day. Not only does it sound downright badass, it also uses the Cyrillic alphabet with in and of itself is a beautiful thing.

Welcome. Was just sailing in USVI. We almost sailed to PR (24miles), but decided not to. Wind was blowing like hell from the wrong direction. Couldn’t make to St Croix either. Just hung out at St John in various bays.

Someday will get to PR

Ayyyee that beach looks beautiful mate!! Hey if you ever do finally sail here, feel free to PM me about places to eat good food at, nice places to visit or have an adventure (like rivers and rainforests) and generally hook you up with anything you might need. Just don’t visit here yet, cuz it’s not fun atm. Too many restrictions from the rona, so the night life is gone (yup, we still have a lame curfew), and the nightlife here is kinda what it’s all about. Well, it’s not ALL about that, obviously, but you’d truly be missing out on half the fun. It’ll be much better if you visit once all this is truly over and people aren’t afraid anymore and the government stops overreaching its authority (if it ever does, which I hope will be the case).

Thank you, and yes, I’m sure it will Big Smile It’s already grown as the MH10S is only about a week old at the moment and I have 2 more lights on the way plus there’s still quite a few on my mental wish list!

Welcome to BLF Neurotoxin! Is that a Nitecore Tiny Monster in your pic? I remember seeing that flashlight way back when and thinking what an incredible flashlight and wondering who would pay that much for a flashlight!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Indeed it is! It’s a TM26GT. I’ve had it since 2016 and it has served me well, specially during the hurricane season! That thing is an absolute POWERHOUSE. It packs a massive punch and it’s really versatile. It throws about as far as the Thrunite Catapult V6 right next to it but a much larger area and with a lot more lumens. Out of all the light’s I own, it is by far the most impressive. To this day people still can’t believe how much light comes out of such a tiny thing, it really is a light cannon. Now you know who pays that much for a flashlight XP Hmmm, reading your signature, I also do the same thing hehe.

Maria was actually the one that really f’d us up! It left us without power for months on end (some places literally still haven’t recovered yet). I have some family members that live in the mountains and they still don’t have water service, and yet they have power. It really makes no sense to me how 4 yrs later, the government still hasn’t fixed that. Anyway, I also made a lot of money during that period, so I really can’t complain about the hurricane. Plus, honestly, it was kind of fun and adventurous, and who doesn’t love an excuse to use their flashlight collection?
